EL PASO -- The Socorro Independent School District has taken action. According to SISD officials, the district held an executive committee meeting to discuss the violations under former Head Coach Ron Vicencio.

Vicencio appeared in court in August for a plea deal. He was head coach of the El Dorado Boys Basketball program, and the committee found that he recruited four of those players from various parts of Mexico.

The committee found the players in violation of two UIL rules - in violation of moving for athletic purposes and recruiting from Mexico.

For that, all four players received three year suspensions from UIL activities.

The committee has stripped El Dorado of five district victories, moving their final district record from 12-4 to 7-9. Also, the committee added a three-year UIL suspension for four Aztec players.
